INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is warning Sunday night’s Denver Broncos-Indianapolis Colts game likely will bring out scammers trying to separate football fans from their money and legitimate tickets.

The game marks the first game for quarterback Peyton Manning in Indianapolis since he left for Denver last year.

Police recommend fans purchase tickets from reputable ticket brokers who have policies in place to compensate customers if a ticket turns out to be counterfeit or stolen. They said counterfeit and stolen tickets will be on the market due to the high interest in the game.

Police also warn that people offering upgraded tickets may be trying to trade fakes for legitimate tickets. They urge fans to look for poor paper stock, misspellings and off-center logos
